I'm sure this topic has been made before but what the hell, let's make another one! Quoting: Anonymous Coward 9266723
Deny that nothing happened and pretend there was a "Consciousnesses shift" or something equally vague and unprovable? Rejoin society and stop trying to see the end of the world? Move the date to march 2013 or something?
Ummm, I never understand this question when people ask it.
Its like the people who post threads like this think they are somehow smarter than others because some weird people on the fringe think the world is ending in 2012.
I got news for you, that doesn't make you special.
People always have, and always will believe strange things. It has more to do with psychological issues than facts or logic. That is just one element of mankind.
As for the authenticity of 2012, any psychic, seer, prophet, yogi, monk, etc worth his grain of salt has understand the significance of 2012.
It is also astronomically verifiable. If you wish to stay ignorant as to what 2012 is actually about, then maybe posting threads like this will make you feel better about yourself.
Those of us who KNOW what December 21st, 2012 actually means, have known for a very, very, very long time. I knew about this since I was about age 9. Those of us who actually know what it is about, never thought any drastic thing was going to happen specifically ON THAT DATE.
I suggest to the OP, instead of making a stupid, pointless thread that has been done 10,000 times on here, you educate yourself about why the date is significant.
